We’ve seen cardboard bikes, surfboards and a huge amount of cardboard furniture, but in what must be a world-first, Lue Nuwame—better known as Homemade Game Guru—has created a cardboard treadmill. And it works! Sort of. Built for a fraction of the cost of a regular motorized treadmill, the cardboard version is fully able to withstand the weight of adult human foot fall, and its tread does—somewhat—spin with the runner.

Portland architecture students build incredible outdoor stage from 520 recycled pallets

How do you design an outdoor music festival which leaves no trace? That was the goal of Pickathon founder Zale Schoenborn when he and his team envisioned an eco roots music festival in the outskirts of Portland Oregon. Since it was launched in 1999, Pickathon Music Festival has been the only waste-free and plastic-free outdoor music festival in the US, featuring solar-powered structures and an outdoor stage designed to be dismantled and recycled at the end of the concert. When students from Portland State University were tasked with designing a recyclable stage for the 2014 concert, they rose to the challenge with an incredible structure built entirely out of recycled shipping pallets. Check out this exclusive behind-the-scenes video that documents the development of this portable stage, which will help to ensure that the wild concert experience will leave no trace on the surrounding environment.
